Pop-up Accordion Hearts


  • Three different colors of paper for the hearts
  • White paper
  • Tacky glue
  • Markers


  1. First fold the white paper in half.
  2. Next, cut out three circles, one from each different color of paper and size.
  3. To fold them accordion style, take one end of the heart and fold it forward very slightly. Then, with that same end, fold it backwards. Do this to all three circles.
  4. Once the circles have been folded, fold them again in half.
  5. On the inside of the folded white paper, glue the edges of the three hearts and place them in order of smallest to largest.

  • Red glitter (any color works)


  1. Cut your white paper in half.
  2. Write out the message you want in pencil.
  3. Trace over that message with glue.
  4. Sprinkle the glitter over the glue so that all of the glue is covered in glitter.
  5. Shake off excess glitter into a trash can.
